The organization of collagen fibrils in the human cornea and sclera was studied by scanning electron microscopy, after digestion of cellular elements by sodium hydroxide, and by conventional transmission electron microscopy. The collagen fibrils in the cornea had a uniform diameter of about 25 nm. In Bowman's layer, individual collagen fibrils were interwoven densely to form a felt-like sheet. In the stroma, most of the collagen fibrils ran abreast in lamellae, with varying widths and thickness… CONTINUE READING
